Because Together We Can Create!

CREARTE is a prevention and intervention center that impacts children, youth and families through its educational, artistic and recreational programs accompanied by psychosocial support services. The center also has multiple community impact projects in order to promote well-being and address vulnerability factors. We have served in the community of San José in Río Piedras since 2001.  

It arises as a response to promote the development of environments that encourage the development of skills and potential of children and youth through the provision of comprehensive services. Over the years responding to the needs of other vulnerable populations by developing programs to also serve adults.

Facilitate alternatives for children and adolescents to develop their emotional and social potential through art, recreation, and fostering a commitment to learning. 

To be a pioneering project using non-traditional strategies for human development that transform the quality of life of the communities served. 

Our goal is to help children, young people and adults from the ages of 6 onwards, who live in vulnerable communities, achieve their full realization as individuals. They actively participate in structured programs aimed at character formation, as well as the acquisition and strengthening of a value system through artistic and recreational activities, as well as support for school tasks. 

Among the goals pursued by the center are: the offering of educational services aimed at strengthening academic performance, providing an alternative education that is responsive to the needs and interests of the participants and parallel to the current reality. Provide preventive programs and services aimed at mitigating vulnerability factors; thus promoting the development of the capacities of the participants.
